Holy carp, it's 5 AM and I have work tomorrow. *lol* But I had to get it finished tonight, because I do leave early in the morning and won't have time to do anything in the morning! *so tired!*
I started this as soon as I first posted to this thread. I also had NONE of the supplies, except some acrylic paint and Sculpey. I can't believe how many stores I ran around to! And I still don't feel this is done.
This is my first shrine.
I chose to do an Alice's Adventures in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass shrine. If it's not obvious from my personal quote, signature, livejournal, webpage, etc. I am quite fond of it.
To start with, I bought an extra copy of the book, and then ripped the poor thing to shreds. I have several different editions, so this one could be sacrificed. I will use the remainder of it to make an altered book I think! I covered the whole thing with AiW pages. You can see some of the text and pictures.
I sculpted the Dormouse and Cheshire Cat and mushrooms from Sculpey and painted them with acrylics. The spots on the mushrooms are wax, because I wanted them to be all texturey.
The pocket watch is a real pocket watch, because I wanted my shrine to keep time. Hehe.
There are more pictures here
, because I don't know what the image limit is on this board, and couldn't find it!
Outside; the front has a mirror, and says "Through the Looking Glass".
Mad Hatter page from AAiW in the background, and a mad hat!
White roses, being painted red.
The Dormouse, not fitting in a teapot!
The Cheshire Cat, or, rather, just his floating head, and his likeness, or rather, the likeness of his floating head at the croquet game.
Just his grin.
Other elements from AiW are a Red Queen playing card (and a 3 of clubs to serve her), keys, a bottle marked "drink me", and a White Knight.
